Joanna Trollope

Author Event

We have a treat in store on Tues 17th March as we welcome bestselling author, Joanna Trollope to Mainstreet to talk about her new book, Mum & Dad.

Master of the emotionally intelligent family story, she never fails to find truth in her writing. She’s also an utterly charming, brilliant speaker.

It’s been twenty-five years since Gus and Monica left England to start a new life in Spain, building a vineyard and wine business from the ground up. However, when Gus suffers a stroke and their idyllic Mediterranean life is thrown into upheaval, it’s left to their three grown-up children in London to step in…

As the children descend on the vineyard, it becomes clear that each has their own idea of how best to handle their parents. But, as long-simmering resentments rise to the surface and tensions reach breaking point, can the family ties proves strong enough to keep them together?

“Trollope [has] a brilliant eye for detail…she writes absorbing, wise stories that dramatize the dilemmas we face.”  – Sunday Times
